Portuguese international winger Cristiano Ronaldo made his debut today in Juventus, scoring twice in the win against Sassuolo (2-1), and acknowledged that he was anxious.
The player, who traded Real Madrid for ‘Juve’ in a transfer that reached 112 million euros, was in ‘white’ for the Torino team, something unusual in Cristiano Ronaldo.
In the previous three days, when Massimiliano Allegri’s team won, Cristiano always played the 90 minutes, but his goal was missing.
“It’s football, the important thing is for the team to win. Maybe I was a little anxious. It is normal, after leaving Madrid, everything that happened and that made me a little more anxious, “admitted the Portuguese to the Italian chain Sky Sport.
Today, with the result no goals at half-time, Cristiano Ronaldo broke the ‘fast’ at 50 and 65 minutes.
“I am very happy, it was a game played, the Sassuolo played well, we have to give merit to what we did, we were intense, we created many occasions. Obviously I’m happy to score my first goals, I was in the mood, “said the Portuguese.
The footballer, who thanked his teammates for their support, added that sometimes anxiety is not controlled, but he knew the goals would come.
“I continue to adapt to the Italian League,” he added.
On Wednesday, Cristiano Ronaldo will also try to make his debut for Juventus in the Champions League with the Turin side visiting Valencia on Matchday 1 of the group stage.
